“The music we had input in —we had a whole list of music that we had to go through, [what we picked] turned out to be the best one. I used to date this girl who was in the entertainment business, [laughs] the adult entertainment business. The lady that used to make her outfits, she was the one who made our first black leather outfits that my brother and I came out in. It totally shocked the wrestling world and took the wrestling world by storm. And those outfits costed us $850, but I’ll tell you it was worth every penny. [Stripper gear] is exactly what it was [laughs]!” (H/t Wrestling Inc. for transcriptions)

“I remember in the WWE we did a rap album. And I had one of the, ‘Booker T, Can You Dig It?’ And they made me use that music for about a month, and I hated it. I hated coming out to that rap music, it just wasn’t me. I just didn’t feel [it], I went to Vince McMahon and said, ‘Vince, I need my old music back’. And because we were promoting the album, he said, ‘Just ride with it a little longer and we’ll get your old music back’. And it was so refreshing getting my old music back.”

It is always fantastic to hear stories from Booker T as his contributions in and out of the ring are phenomenal. Wrestlers as multi-talented as him come very few and far between, and fans must cherish them while they still entertain us on a weekly basis.
